Coach Driver recruitment agency listing

Coach drivers provide transportation for passengers who wish to make long trips.

To work in coach driver jobs, candidates must be at least 18 years of age and hold a full, clean driving licence. The majority of employers of coach drivers seek candidates with GCSEs. Once in employment, coach drivers may study for qualifications relating to their role, such as NVQs in Road Passenger Transport.

Newly appointed coach drivers are paired up with experienced staff and receive extensive induction training covering customer care, manual handling, disability awareness, health and safety, overseas driving laws, foreign language skills, and defensive driving. Drivers also work towards gaining a passenger carrying vehicle (PCV) licence and a Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC).

The main employers of coach drivers are companies offering long distance tours. Most coach driver jobs involve working shifts covering evenings, weekends and public holidays. Working hours for coach drivers cannot exceed 56 hours a week, with a 90 hour maximum limit over a course of two weeks. In addition to working long hours, candidates for coach driver jobs must be comfortable spending time away from home as they may be required to transport passengers to overseas destinations. Vacancies for full-time, part-time and temporary coach drivers may be advertised through specialist recruitment agencies.

Trainee coach drivers may earn around £10,000 a year. Experienced coach drivers can earn higher salaries, particularly if they are required to spend weeks overseas.
